Chiropractors are not real doctors

Doctors Are Doctors. Chiropractors are Chiropractors.

 

Chiropractor in his office

Medical doctors and chiropractors look at health and healing in very different ways.

Your notion of a “real” doctor probably conforms to a prototype generated by the mass media.

Many have come to think of a doctor as someone who prescribes advice and drugs or performs surgery. Sporting a white lab coat or surgical scrubs with a stethoscope at the neck, doctors are seen as all-knowing, omnipotent and able to save patients in 60 minutes, less commercials.

A medical doctor (MD) and a chiropractor (DC) while different, have both received a degree from a government accredited medical school or chiropractic college and are licensed to practice.

But that’s where the similarity ends because each discipline looks at health and healing in very different ways.

Medical Doctors Chiropractors
  • Sees the disease
  • Studies the blood
  • Relies on drugs
  • Treats symptoms
  • Sees the person with the disease
  • Improves nervous system integrity
  • Reduces causes of nerve interference
  • Promotes proper bodily function

Clearly, these are two very different philosophies. Yet, each has its place. If you have broken bones or you’re bleeding by the side of the road, you want the heroic lifesaving measures of emergency medical treatment. But if you have chronic aches and pains or an interest in wellness, you may want the health restoration possible that is the focus of chiropractic care.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Jon for 11 years. When I began seeing him, my spine curved in the opposite direction of how it should. It is now curving in the right direction. Dr. Jon is extremely knowledgeable about chiropractic. He is holistic in his approach to better health. I highly recommend Dr. Jon."
    Terri Bach, San Ramon, CA
  • "I came to Dr. Widenbaum because of back pain due to an auto accident. My back pain started going away, and I was able to sleep at night. I definitely recommend the Widenbaum Chiropractic team.
    They gave and provide the best healthcare."
